4K HDR Processor X1: More detail, more natural, more real
The 4K HDR Processor X1™ with Object-based HDR remaster and Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR technology gives pure colours at higher brightness levels for truly natural pictures. See everything you watch come to life with greater depth, detail and texture.
TRILUMINOS Display: Extra colours, extra brilliance
More colours means more realism. A TRILUMINOS Display with its specially-developed backlight selectively maps colours across a wider gamut, ensuring subtle colours do not become oversaturated and unnatural. You’ll enjoy vivid, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene.
Uncover the detail with 4K HDR
A High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatible TV will change the way you look at TV. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content delivers exceptional detail, colour and contrast, with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. The result is the most lifelike picture our TVs have ever been able to create, with brilliant highlights and fine detail.
Rediscover every detail with 4K X-Reality PRO
Discover a thrilling world of extraordinary clarity with every single pixel enhanced beautifully. Individual parts of each scene are analysed and matched with a special image database that independently addresses texture, contrast, colour and edges. The difference is clear with supremely lifelike detail, whatever you're watching.
This TV is recommended by Netflix
Get a better streaming experience with a Netflix Recommended TV. A Netflix Recommended TV is chosen for its high performance, cutting edge smart features and easy app access. And also, you can watch Marco Polo in 4K HDR today, with a premium Netflix subscription. Members will be able to enjoy more HDR content in the coming months.
Explore new worlds with Android TV
Your smart TV just got smarter. Enjoy many of your favourite smartphone and tablet experiences on a big, beautiful BRAVIA screen. Android TV with advanced voice control lets you connect and access content, from movies and TV shows to thousands of apps, simply by talking.
Narrow aluminium frame
The narrow aluminium frame helps the TV look slim and attractive, while focusing the eye on the screen for maximum entertainment.
Cable-free front
Hide all your cables from set-top boxes or Blu-ray players within the unique stand.
Cable management
Keep wires out of sight. All of your cables can be neatly arranged across the back of the TV and channelled into the stand, so everything looks tidy.
Motionflow XR keeps the action smooth
Enjoy smooth and sharp details even in fast-moving sequences with Motionflow XR. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original ones. It compares key visual factors on successive frames, then calculates the split second of missing action in the sequences. Some models also include black-frame insertion for a blur-free and truly cinematic look.
Object-based HDR remaster
By analysing the objects in each scene individually, Object-based HDR remaster optimises and enhances colour and contrast. It brings everything you watch closer to the quality of HDR. Dark elements get darker, bright elements brighter and everything in between is more accurately lit, for realism in every scene never-before-possible on our TVs.
Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR
Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR creates a smoother, more natural picture by minimising its colour banding. With 14-bit powerful signal processing, it breaks up the solid bands of colour of an 8-bit or 10-bit source, up-converting to 14-bit equivalent gradation, with 64 times more colour levels. It delivers graceful reproduction of faces, sunsets and other areas of subtle colour gradation.
Content Bar: find everything fast
The unobtrusive content bar quickly lets you find the movie, TV show or video you’re looking for. Call up the Content bar and you can keep watching, while you scan through live TV, videos on demand, downloaded TV shows and much more. You can even customise the content bar to show you the content you go to most often first.
Say what you want to see with voice search
Spend less time browsing, and more time watching. Voice search on Android TV provides you with the power of Google search, allowing you to find content across different services without the hassle of time-consuming text entry. You can also get recommendations; asking for “romantic comedies” for example, brings up a list of suitable options
Chromecast built-in: Plays nice with your other devices
BRAVIA is Chromecast built-in ready so you can easily cast your favourite entertainment like YouTube or Netflix from your personal device on to the stunning BRAVIA screen.3 You can cast from Android, iOS, or your laptop.
Made to listen: ClearAudio+
Make your listening as lifelike as your viewing. ClearAudio+ fine-tunes TV sound for an immersive experience that seems to surround you. Hear music, dialogue and surround effects with greater clarity and separation, whatever you're watching.
DSEE restores detail to your digital music
Low-resolution Internet video, catch-up TV and other heavily compressed audio files don’t always sound so great. A large amount of information gets thrown away when digital audio is compressed. With Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) technology, lost frequency components (especially high frequencies) are restored for natural sound with a more spacious feel.
Google Play: A world of content and apps
Discover movies and TV shows, games and much more from Google Play. Enjoy a huge and ever-growing choice of apps4 on your TV in a brand new way.
Cinematic S-Force Front Surround
Enjoy an immersive soundstage that pulls you into the heart of the action. S-Force Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum – using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you’ll enjoy rich, high-fidelity audio across a wider listening area.
Experience the best in 4K UHD picture quality
Our range of 4K UHD TVs deliver stunning picture quality and are compatible with the Digital Europe UHD requirements.
Clear Phase for smooth, balanced frequencies
BRAVIA uses a powerful computer model to analyse and compensate for inaccuracies in speaker response. It does this by ‘sampling’ the speaker frequency with higher precision. This information is fed back to cancel out any peaks or dips in the speaker’s natural response – resulting in pure, natural audio with smooth, even reproduction of all frequencies.
Turn your TV into a digital recorder: USB HDD REC
Store your favourite TV shows on an external USB hard disk drive to enjoy whenever you want. USB HDD REC allows one-touch and timer recording of a digital broadcast onto any USB HDD device up to 2TB in capacity. While viewing the show, simply press REC to start recording, which will automatically stop at the end of the programme.
IR Blaster – control everything with one remote
The Infra-red (IR) Blaster lets you control other devices in your home from your Sony TV remote. You can use it to control your Set-top box (cable box) with the TV remote controller.
YouView: the best of catch-up and on-demand TV
With YouView built-in, you can scroll back up to seven days to watch shows from BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4 and Demand 5. You can also access an extensive library of on-demand content. Simply connect your BRAVIA to an aerial and broadband connection to get started with YouView.
